One of the many advantages of the mediation process is the control that it provides to both parties in determining the outcome. Before beginning a divorce or family law mediation, you can become further empowered by being prepared. At Townsend, Tomaio & Newmark, our highly experienced mediators are committed to encouraging you through every phase of the mediation process, to voice your concerns, explain your priorities, and participate in the process of brainstorming potential alternatives. By providing you with information and helping you to understand the legal implications of various outcomes, we can ensure that you command your own destiny. Below, we have provided a list of resources that may help you to feel more prepared for your mediation. Our website is also intended to provide you with the most current and relevant information as it relates to a wide range of divorce and family law matters, as well as answers to common questions that may arise during your journey.

This page serves as a resource center, providing an aggregated list of useful tools, helpful information, and important connections that may serve you through the process. Access the links below to learn more, or contact our Morris County offices at (973) 840-8970 for a cost-free consultation.
